KANSAS CITY, MO, US, March 9, 2022 — The Security Industry Association (SIA) has named Kelly Lake, Director of Strategic Alliances, to the inaugural honoree list for the SIA Women in Security Forum Power 100. New in 2022, this initiative presented by the SIA Women in Security Forum, honors 100 women in the security industry each year who are role models for actively advancing diversity, inclusion, innovation, and leadership in the community.

“The SIA Women in Security Forum is thrilled to recognize Kelly as one of the women of the 2022 Power 100 – an accomplished, impactful group who are modeling leadership, inspiring others and shaping and transforming the security industry,” said SIA Women in Security Forum Chair Kasia Hanson. “We applaud Kelly and the rest of the 2022 honorees for their meaningful contributions to the industry and the larger community and look forward to celebrating their achievements at ISC West.”

As Director of Global Strategic Alliances at Zenitel, Kelly is responsible for managing the strategic alliances' program that supports manufacturer partners who integrate Zenitel's intelligent critical-communication solutions into their business. The strategic alliances' program is one where Kelly must place Zenitel’s customer’s interests first, and she has done so, growing the program to its current successful level. Kelly is teaching Zenitel’s strategic partners and its technology partners about the critical role that audio plays within security solutions. By embracing and communicating Zenitel’s innovations in audio, Kelly is educating the security industry, as well.

Kelly Lake is also a strong role model who not only advances innovation at Zenitel, but also embodies and displays leadership, diversity, and inclusion. Kelly strongly advocates for her female colleagues to become involved with the security industry outside of their respective Zenitel roles. She urges her female colleagues to further their education, attend security industry events, and to be unafraid to make their voices heard.

“It's such an honor to be included in the inaugural class of the Power 100,” said Lake. “Not only does the Women in Security Forum provide excellent programs to connect and empower women, but they have also elevated the entire conversation around diversity in the security industry in a really positive and inclusive way.  I am thrilled to be involved!”

Lake will be honored along with other Power 100 honorees on March 25 at ISC West 2022, with a networking breakfast and Power 100 celebration.
